OK, Rovio wants to open up with another program, but I won't allow it. In fact it isn't even installed on my laptop but it is there. So I tried to remove the program from my computer but I can't, because I can't find it in registry (never been installed so it's not there). So how can I get this software out, never wanted it, never will. I did uncheck it from startup, but for some dang reason it keeps telling me to run this software with another one of mine. More annoying than anything, I just keep x-ing it out whenever I start up my laptop, then it's gone untill I restart again.

This isn't a programming issue. What OS are you using?

Vista, funny thing, I've had this laptop for a year and it just started to do this for the past week.

You have to rephrase your issue description, because I have no idea what your real problem is.
